One of the most incredible caves in Bulgaria, located near the town of Asenovgrad (Central South Bulgaria) is to open on May 1. On occasion of the new tourist season, the first 10 visitors will be able to see the cave free of charge. With a view to ensure compliance with the anti-epidemic measures, no more than eight to ten people will be allowed to visit the cave at the same time, announced the owners of the tourist site.

Dobrostanski Biser is a relatively small cave, but visitors can see all three calcite formations – stalactites, stalagmites and columns. The small cave ponds are the biggest attraction. They are arranged like a cascade- one below the other and each pond fills the next one with water. The name of the cave comes from the beautiful rock pearls that formed over the centuries in its lakes. A small bat colony lives in the cave. These animal species play a key role in preserving the eco balance in the entire region. Dobrostanski Biser cave is easily accessible and can be visited by people of all ages, including children.
